Everyone lies – at least some of the time. This seems to be the message in Hawkins very popular thriller. From the unreliable narrator, who suffers from drunken blackouts that make all her memories suspect, to those who tell stories intentionally to conceal what they have done, no one is to be believed.
This is a well written, exciting book that slowly develops the details of a crime by following the dogged efforts of our flawed heroine to recall what has happened to her and work out the implications. Even if you guess who did it before she does, you will be cheering her on as she travels down the rocky road to redemption. A nicely done story that deserves to be a best seller.
